In addition to preserving historic landscapes, the American Battlefield Trust conducts programs designed to inform the public about America’s first century conflicts and the consequences of the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, and Civil War. We seek to create a personal connection to the past and foster opportunities for individuals to experience battlefields first hand.

The Trust hosts, sponsors and participates in a number of events and tours ranging from our Annual Conference and Grand Review for Color Bearers, to the National Teacher Institute and family-friendly Cadet Conferences and dynamic Generations tours.

Whether it means removing modern buildings or replanting trees, we our Stewardship program seeks to return battlefields to their wartime appearance. For more than two decades, our Park Day program has connected historic sites with thousands of community-minded volunteers eager to help them shine.
